Birthday Princess Cards

These adorable birthday cards are for the same twins I made the name plaques for. I used Once Upon a Princess for the castle, which is cut at 4″. It is 4 layers. The writing is done with a Marvy Embossing marker and heat embossed with Gold Embossing powder. The inside is also handwritten and heat embossed. The scalloped circle is a Nestabilities die. I used the same marker to write 1st in the circle so it would stand out. I LOVE the Once upon a Princess cartridge!

Name Plaques

One of my good friends has a set of beautiful identical twin girls who will be celebrating their 1st birthday this weekend. I picked up a couple of 4×16″ pine boards at Hobby Lobby along with some vinyl to make these plaques. The font is from the Storybook Cartridge, and the butterflies are from Cake Basics cartridge. There are some great cuts on those cake carts! The names are cut at 2.5″ if I can remember correctly. I laid it out on my gypsy, so I can’t remember exactly without pulling it back out. I’m pretty sure the butterflies are at 1.5″ height. You can’t see it very well on this pic, but the base of the butterfly is pink. I am very pleased with how well these came out. Hope you enjoy!

Topiaries in large quanities!

Hi. I have been very busy the past several weeks putting all these arrangements together for a retirement party. I had to do 20 of the Topiary arrangements which can be seen in a previous post, as well as 20 of the Tim Holtz rose arrangements, also previously posted. This was my first large event, and my mom and I were high fiving at 11:00 pm the night before the party as we finished up and got the last ones packed. I didn’t to get pics of them sitting at at the party as I was on stage during the presentation. I also couldn’t get them at home as I don’t have the space to sit out that many at one time. While we were finishing them up, I had them spread out over two rooms. But here they are all packed up and ready to go. At least you can see the massive amount of flowers that I put together!
